Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., joins 'Fox & Friends' following his Republican rebuttal to President Biden's address to Congress. He denounces racist reactions to his speech from the left:
SEN. TIM SCOTT: Well, I'll just say that the response to my speech last night from the left was for me to mention that intolerance so often comes from the left with words like Uncle Tim and the N word being used against me by the left. And last night what was trending in social media was Uncle Tim.
And they doubled down on this concept of liberal oppression. It is stunning in 2021 that those who speak about ending discrimination want to end it by more discrimination. You look at COVID package, the COVID package itself discriminated against white farmers.
Why we had the Pigford Settlements in the early '90s so that Black farmers would be treated fairly by the federal government, now we're going to -- we're going to reverse that and discriminate against white farmers? Did we not learn the lesson the first time around? And I'll just tell you that it has been an amazing morning with so many good people calling.
But the left is -- they have doubled down that they are going to not attack my policies but they are literally attacking the color of my skin. You cannot step out of your lane according to the liberal elite left.
And that's one of the reasons why you can help us by going to votetimscott.com. I am learning from Lindsay Graham without any question. And it is a fight, we are in for the fight of our nation.
